Plácido Domingo Concert Film Flops

167 0


(CelebrityAccess) — As the legendary tenor Plácido Domingo faces allegations of sexual misconduct from multiple women, a concert film showcasing his 50th-anniversary performance at the Arena di Verona in August fell flat with audiences.

The film, the “Placido Domingo Gala,” was presented by Fathom Events and opened in 284 theaters for a Sept. 7th screening. However, according to Deadline Hollywood, the film only generated $80,295 in revenue or just $283 per screen.

Fathom Events, who has brought other concert films, such as the recent BTS “Love Yourself” World Tour film, decided to go forward with the film despite an expanded litany of allegations of sexual harassment and misconduct against Domingo that have led to canceled events and an ongoing investigation by the Los Angeles Opera.

Other classical events by Fathom, including an ongoing series featuring the Metropolitan Opera, tend to perform well, Deadline reported. Of the 73 event screenings, the Domingo film was one of the most poorly-attended.

Domingo has not been charged in connection with any of the allegations against him.
